It happened to everyone – staying out in the sun longer than needed? In case of sunburns, skin becomes red, itchy and hot. In case of severe burns, one may suffer from swelling and ulcers. It is important to keep in mind that sunburns could cause not only short-term discomfort, but also skin dryness, pigmented spots and ageing, and there is even more important risk – skin cancer.

How to avoid sunburns

  • Apply sun-protection skin cream before you are going out.
  • In case if you are planning to have a rest at the water, make sure your sun-protection skin care cream is water-repellent.
  • Wear a hat and sun-protecting clothes to save your body from overheat.
  • To avoid dehydration, especially when it is hot outside, drink enough water throughout the day.
